Leafcutter bees and leafcutter bee cocoons

Disclaimer

Leafcutter bees are natural biological insects that require an environment with specific conditions in order to thrive. As such, BeeGAP cannot guarantee their success.

Leafcutter bees and leafcutter bee cocoons are sensitive to temperature and humidity. Extremes in either of these can negatively impact the bees and affect their emergence rate or nesting activity.

Leafcutter bees and leafcutter bee cocoons are also negativity affected by chemicals - garden sprays, pesticides etc.

Leafcutter bees and leafcutter bee cocoons can be negatively affected by water (and other liquids). It is important to ensure all water and irrigation sources are not placed within close proximity of your bees or bee cocoons.

Leafcutter bee emergence rates do vary from year to year due to the following reasons beyond our control:

  • Seasonal weather pattern.
  • Unexpected or extreme weather conditions.
  • Local weather conditions.
  • Irregular weather patterns.
  • Natural disasters.
  • Chemical spray drift e.g. from neighbours.
  • Incorrect placement of leafcutter bee cocoons or BeeHome.
  • Use of an unsuitable nesting habitat.
  • Overheating (Courier transport, hot mailboxes, incorrect positioning, etc).

Leafcutter bees require a reasonably constant weather conditions over a few weeks to achieve good emergence success. Irregular weather patterns can mean some bee larvae may not develop to emergence. Extreme heat or cold can also negatively affect developing bee larvae.

Leafcutter bees require placement as per our instructions. Not following our guidelines may result in lower success rates.

Leafcutter bee emergence rate can vary greatly based on all these factors but we generally see a 50% or greater success rate with good seasonal weather and correct BeeHome placement.

With leafcutter bees being a biological insect that relies on a number of variable conditions to thrive we cannot guarantee their success, and as such BeeGAP cannot offer refunds for leafcutter bee cocoons or replacements bees cocoons.
